The tonal chain shifts are motivated by reducing articulatory effort according to the tonal markedness scale. When a tone shifts to a more marked one, it is because of the anti-neutralization nature, which can be captured by Preserving Contrasts (PC). PC keeps feature contrast in the output. The maintenance of PC comes from transderivational anti… CONTINUE READING
